The main reason why Europe is going bankrupt these days

These last few months and years have been a disaster for the economic Europe as countries like Spain and Portugal are on the brink of bankruptcy and Greece has fallen so hard many think it's futile to exhaust the European Union funds on a country that is going not going the improve it's economy but fall in debt once again. Unfortunately my knowledge of economics is the same as the probability of China turning into a democracy so I decided rather to look at the historical variable that could have generated today's problems.

At first I was looking at the things in common the Southern Europe has in common and by accident my friend was reading a book about the Roman Empire and all it's history and he prompted that in fact the Roman Empire may have a massive say about how some countries are the way they are.

As many of you know during it's height the Roman Empire was in charge of every land around the Mediterranean Sea, in Europe and in Africa. However the Romans never reached the Baltic Sea and the North Sea where there are countries like Germany, Netherlands and Scandinavia. (Although you could argue that UK was just under their command for substantial amount of years than the Mediterranean countries). And if you now look at those countries you will see that they are now the power house behind Europe, they are the ones producing the most and they are the ones without so much as a flaw in their economies (UK excluded). Now the the countries that were under the masters of logistics and tactics that were the Romans are now on the cliff edge staring into the black abyss that is the economic failure because just look at Spain and their philosophy and their socially accepted system of life. For them it's coffee in the morning till 10 then bit of work then that infamous siesta and then a little bit of work again. For the southern countries that's the routine for most of them and that just smells of laziness and inability to care, it's like they are always high and don't really care about anything. I think this has lead them to this Economic failure and humiliation. Although some of you might argue that I am just going off the stereotypes that were just dreamt up by Northern Europe but that is just not the case as ask any Frenchman, Spaniard or Italian about the amount of work and expectations in work that are in countries like UK and they will answer that it's all too full of stress and other excuses.

This may not be the reason the very highly paid economists say but I think it has at least played a minor effect on today's economic failure in Europe.

Hi my name is Miki and I have decided to do a blog about whatever comes into my mind and certain issues that trouble the world.

Let's start off with what many UK students dread this time of they year. Yes I am talking about the Results Day which is getting closer like a tiger chasing the last gazelle on the plains of the ever hot Africa. After the exams which we sat in June and May everyone started worrying  if their long hours spent in front of the textbooks and if the liters of sweat from the anxiety and the near heart attacks got them the grades they expect. The worst days are the very first days after your exams when you can't sleep at all like you had insomnia but the truth is you're going over every answer and every question in your head trying to remember if you done another stupid mistake which might cost you your future. I tried not to think about it but I'm sure I'm not the only one which was obsessed so much. Fortunately that passed after few days and I was able to enjoy silent mornings when no alarm was ringing and my subconscious was going off like a natural clock embedded in my skull.

However I am now sitting in front off my laptop and looking at the calendar like it's some magical painting which you can't get away. It seems like months since I sat my last exam and I'm thinking how the fuck does it take so long for the old pricks who don't have anything to do to mark my papers. I sometimes wonder and I've come to conclusion that there is no logical reason why it takes them so long. I even tried to find some sort of answer online but it's like looking into the sky and trying look for aliens, absolutely futile. So here I am still sitting in my room with absolutely nothing to do but to kill myself mentally by thinking what are my exam results.
